MyVerses for Scripture Memory
MyVerses Icon MyVerses 7.0 is your digital assistant for successful Scripture memorization!
Best of Old and New

MyVerses was inspired by card based Scripture memorization techniques recommended by The Navigators, Spiritual Success Institute, Jack Van Impe (aka "The Walking Bible"), and others. Ron Hood's wonderful book How to Successfully Memorize & Review Scripture describes an effective system of review that, with his permission, is used as the default review schedule in MyVerses. The review schedule component is customizable, however, and you can configure MyVerses to follow recommendations from other methods or create your own unique system of review.

Interactive Learning

Interactive tools are provided to help you with the initial memorization of each new verse. These include an assortment of methods for revealing or hiding characters and words. You pick the methods that work best for you and make them part of your personal learning program. This interactive approach has been shown to be extremely helpful during the first phase of memory work in which the goal is simply to repeat the entire Scripture passage without glancing at the text.

Repetition Intervals

The Learning Counter (used to track the number of times you have repeated a passage) and Milestone Alerts (which notify you when your personal repetition goals have been reached) are provided to assist you during the second phase of the learning process. During this phase, repetition intervals are used to help firmly impress the Scripture passage into your memory.

Personal Review Schedule

Once a Scripture selection has been committed to memory, your personal review schedule determines how frequently that Scripture is reviewed. MyVerses uses this schedule, along with the current review history for each verse, to determine when each verse is due for its next review. MyVerses attends to these mundane administrative details so you can spend your time learning and reviewing your favorite Scripture verses!
Schedule Form
Review Lists

Verses due for review are displayed in the appropriate Daily, Weekly, Monthly or Quarterly review list. A tap on the item's checkbox tells MyVerses that you have completed your review of the item. Completed items are either displayed with a check in their checkbox, or hidden completely, based on the push button selected in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Completed items are automatically "unchecked" the next time they are due for review.
Review List
Passage Display

Tapping on an item in a review list will open that item's record in the View form. This will allow you to view the Scripture's entire passage. Tools for learning and review are accessible from this form.

Progress Reports

The Statistics form displays the total number of records, the number due for review, a suggested goal for the current day, and the number reviewed on the current day in each category.

Selection List

An optional, completely customizable, book name selection list may be used when entering the reference for a new verse to memorize. Use of this option can simplify data entry and improve uniformity within the Reference fields.
